's congress. it looks like the situation on the korean peninsula will be their first major foreign policy challenge. chinese government officials are trying to show they're doing what they can to keep the peace. a foreign ministry spokesperson appealed to leaders in north and south korea to let cooler heads prevail. >> translator: the relevant countries should show calm and restraint so we can avoid any further escalation of the situation. >> reporter: hua chunying says china is carrying out u.n. resolutions consistently and is fulfilling international obligations. north korea's response to the latest round of u.n. sanctions has put china on edge. officials in beijing want to avoid driving authorities in pyongyang into a corner which could result in the regime's collapse. they fear that would prompt north koreans to flee across the border and into chinese territory. china is north korea's biggest aid provider and trading partner. its incoming leaders have not made any public comments about this latest tension on the korean peninsula. so it's not clear how they'll follow up on the new sanc
do and who does he listen to. on some level, can you even win on the foreign policy front? do you not have to look at this as a political issue. the "washington post," foreign policy had a pretty sharp assessment of how president obama's foreign policy has been developed lately. which is to say, the president had a truly disturbing habit of funneling major foreign policy decisions through a small kabul of relatively inexperienced white house advisers whose turf was strictly politics. their primary concern was how any action in afghanistan or in the middle east would play on the nightly news or which talking point it would give the republicans. >> well, you make a very good point. this is a highly, highly delicate time and the "new yorker" today points out that if chuck hagel's confirmation had not been so drawn out, his trip first trip there, which is a major test for him, might not have coincided with hamid karzai's public anger fit. which is an interesting thing to think about. there's no doubt this is going to be complicated and with us for a long time. it's tricky. but you kno
government. they have joined the sulu army. we look at whether malaysia's foreign-policy in the 1960's has backfired. >> it was once a 30,000 strong army. the national liberation front led a rebellion against the philippine government in the 1960's. it wanted a separate homeland for the people of the southern philippines. but its leader has now told al jazeera it was a movement backed by a powerful ally -- malaysia. this professor says they received funding, weapons, and training from the malaysian government. in alaysia, you know, was state of war with marcos. in order to survive, they needed from divert marcos' ire malaysia. >> malaysia chose to arm them after plans were exposed for the philippines under former president ferdinand marcos. for malaysia, it was an obvious alliance. >> we want to protect ourselves , and they asked for help. when you are in that situation, we extended help to them. >> but years later, this strategy may be backfiring. some of the fighters that malaysia once empowered our now fighting against their own forces in sabah. leaders say mnlf he did not sanction the
in foreign policies. but i know you got people that suffered in the sandy hurricane. they're going to be cutting that by 2 1/2 billion dollars, according to some democratic senators now, while we're giving more money -- priorities seem all screwed up. >> it runs counter to the crazy theories in the government that we opinion money to make money. no, we're spending money to lose money with what we're doing to egypt. speaking to their theories, bring it back to the u.s. i'm waiting to hear from unger. >> i let you do it. nobody else. >> sabrina, go ahead. >> i just think this administration seems to have sort of a lack of strategy when it comes to foreign policy, which appears to be a theme here of the week. lack of strategy at home, how we're doing cuts, lack of strategy abroad. i think we have interest with egypt in the middle east in terms of women's rights and minority rights and israel. i think there is a reason to have this relationship. but i don't think this $250 million is going to do squat. >> i do think there is a strategy here, that is spending more money fixes things, no
it comes to foreign policy, which appears to be a theme here of the week. lack of strategy at home, how we're doing cuts, lack of strategy abroad. i think we have interest with egypt in the middle east in terms of women's rights and minority rights and israel. i think there is a reason to have this relationship. but i don't think this $250 million is going to do squat. >> i do think there is a strategy here, that is spending more money fixes things, no matter whether it does or not, steve. that's the thinking. i mean, the wind mills aren't giving you the power, spend more money, another $12 million. egypt is not behaving, give them more money, maybe they will. >> it's 250 million or 5 billion, it's an absolute waste of money unless they restructure that economy. giving the $250 million, they brought like art laugh, who cut their tax cut, left the economy -- let the economy grow. free the entrepreneurs in egypt. how about that? >> i want to qualify my remark about liking bribes. sounds corrupt. yes, i think we should bribe nations to be democratic, to give citizens rights to make sure that
. undeniably. i think what i'd like to see though, more from maduro, a more innovative foreign policy. he was the foreign minister. in my personal view, he had a retrograde foreign policy more a lined to bashar al assad and gadhafi. what i'd like to see is much more innovative domestic policy. if anything, i think chavez did not go far enough. for example, i think that the economic cooperatives, for example, that he established, very few people are aware that venezuela has the most rising and flourishing systems of economic cooperatives. i think now in light of all the financial difficulties in the world and the like, workers are looking for alternatives, but i think on principle it's worth looking into these innovative solutions, particularly the world financial crisis. >> aren't these innovative solutions that chavez had essentially all bank rolled by higher oil prices? >> yes. without the oil, none of this would be possible. the wonderful comparative movement that nicholas refers to would be bankrupt without the oil money. none of those comparisons is sustainable. the story here is not
of extreme humanitarian distress. our foreign policies in inseparable from yun holdingr fo human right, protect lives and supporting international law. with you of we must assist the genuine moderate and democratic forces in syria who are in dire need of help and who feel by abandoned by the international community. the longer this conflict guess on. the more human sufferingn persecution of minorities, radicalization and sectarianl radicalization and sectarianl despite the three compelling arguments, there will be those who say that britain should have nothing to do with jair.shu but we cannot look the other way while international law and human rights are out. we cannot step back from a crisis that could destabilizeed the heart of the mild east and the height of irresponsibility the height of irresponsibility our own security so i want to ex lane to the house today the next step in increasing ourport to the syrian people and i emphasized that there may have to be further steps. we have contributed nearly 140 million pounds in humanitarian aid so far. this is from food, clean drinking
. then if you look at obama's foreign policy. what is its core idea? it is the same. it is looking at america as the great pirate in the world. america goes into afghanistan and iraq to take advantage, to get oil. america is seen ultimately as a looter, a thief on a global scale. in some sense obama's foreign policy is aimed at trimming back america. restoring the kind of global balance of power. now the important point to realize is that this is not some foreign thing. it has come to america in the 60's, it is part of american liberalism. if you listen to the stoifer america, it is a story of what? theft. how did we get america? we stole it from the indians. slavery is seen as robbing the free labor of african americans. so the whole story of america is the story of oppression. this is the liberal argument, it is broad scaled and it needs to be answered. in our film, we intend to answer it. this is not just about the makers and the takers. we hear a lot of talk about the productive people, people show are parasitic on society. obama's liberal has resident, it wins voters. why, it has a moral
tom lantos, a survivor, was my assistant, was my foreign policy adviser for years, and tom used to say all the time, joe -- he talked that hungarian accent -- joe, we must do another fundraiser for aipac. [laughter] i did more fundraisers for aipac in the 1970s and early 1980s than -- just about as many as anybody. thank god you were not putting on shows like this. we would have never made it. we would have never made it. my lord, it's so great to be with you all and great to see you. mr. president, thank you so much for that kind introduction, and president-elect bob cohen, the entire aipac board of directors, i'm delighted to be with you today, but i'm particularly delighted to be with an old friend -- and he is an old friend. we use that phrase lightly in washington, but it's real, and i think he'd even tell you. ehud barak, it's great to be with you. great to be with you. [applause] there is a stand-up guy. there is a stand-up guy, standing up for his country, putting his life on the line for his country, and continuing to defend the values that we all share. i am a fan of the man.
noninterventionist approach to foreign policy which comes from a libertarian streak. >> an isolationist. >> isolationaism. this drives people like john mccain, lindsey graham crazy. mccain called them wacko birds. you're going to have the neoconservatives, bill kristol and others out there saying don't let rand paul -- don't give rand paul the keys to our foreign policy car. this debate is not going to be worked out any time soon. it could get a lot more vicious and -- >> polarizing. do you think it will actually be more splitting of the party? >> the interesting thing is rand paul tries to speak for the tea party wing of the party but doesn't represent the tea party wing on foreign policy, but they like him on other things. i think there's going to be a lot of confusion. if you two to the facebook page for the conservative movement, it's going to say it's complicated. >> right. here's marco rubio, as you know, 2016 star in the making, and he worked hard today in his speech to cast himself as the anti-mitt romney. take a listen to this. >> the vast majority of the american people are ha
and the discussions around gay marriage and foreign policy and the opinions are sort of all over the map, and really, this time i think that it needs to be used for the republicans to solidify, with who are are we? what kind of party are wie goin to be and position themselves well. >> one of the speakers is mitch mcconnell this morning and this is what he said. >> i want you to take a look at the stack of paper behind e me. it is the most powerful argument yet against obama care. what you are seeing is 20,000 pages of rules and regulations. >> so, david, you have been watching this, too. this has been sort of the drum beat this morning, obama care, and we have heard many times the first thing that came out that was said there repeal obama care and when you look at this, are these the ideas that are going to move the party forward? is this new? >> i don't know if it is new, richard, but it is something that if you look at what is going on capitol hill with the budget discussions, paul ryan has a budget out to repeal obama care to save mo money, so that the republicans are not running away from that m
foreign-policy. that has not been the case. if anything, we have seen the belligerence and aggression has increased. he oversaw three acts of violence of the un security council resolutions last year. only gottenhave worse. he wants to maintain the regime in power. he wants recognition of north korea as a nuclear weapon states. it's not a return in negotiations to its own terms, receiving benefits. >> do you think the latest sanctions passed last week will make any difference to the situation? >> incrementally. unfortunately, it is an incremental improvement over the many resolutions before. one could argue that the time for incremental his nation has passed. of north korea's history conducting acts of war and terror against its neighbors. >> thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> now to a new scientific discovery. mars could have supported life billions of years ago. that is according to u.s. scientists who unveiled evidence brought back from the rover u.s. curiosity. they say at one point water and minerals provide a potential place for microbes to live. earlier i spoke to the geolog
a noninterventionist foreign policy. >> congressman, you don't think that changed with the 9/11 attacks, sir? >> what changed? >> the noninterventionist policies. >> no. nonintervention was a major contributing factor. have you ever read about the reasons they attacked us? they attacked us because we've been over there. >> are you suggesting we invited the 9/11 attack, sir? >> i'm suggesting that we listen to the people who attacked us and the reason they did it. they have already now since that time have killed 3,400 of our men. i don't think it was necessary. >> comment on that? >> that's really an extraordinary statement. that's an extraordinary statement. as someone who lived through the attack of september 11th, that we invited the attack because we were attacking iraq. i don't think i've ever heard that before, and i've heard some pretty absurd explanations for september 11th. >> there's a lot of applause. shouldn't have cut that off. tremendous applause for rudy giuliani. he thumped them. we remember that. fast forward to 2013. contrast that to the response to his son, rand paul's, 13-hour fil
the bronze star and purple heart. the president's foreign policy is under fire from someone who used to help him devise and implement it. tonight, chief washington correspondent james rosen reports on a former advisor two is going public with scorching criticism. >> due out next month, the dispensable nation presents the scathing insider account of the obama administration yet published. author valley nazer, academic joined the state department as aid to late richard holbrook, known throughout washington as legendary heavyweight with ego to match. he helped hillary clinton formulate policy on afghanistan and pakistan. exerts on foreignpolicy.com, he reports that the obama white house used leaks and other leaks to undermine holbrook and tried hard to cut his boss out of the picture, too. those with the inner circle and veteran of the campaign were suspicious. even after clinton proved she was a team player they were concerned about her popularity and feared she could overshadow the president. had it not been for clinton's tenacity and the respect she commanded the state department would have
at the carnegie endowment for international peace and formerly editor of "foreign policy" magazine. and former trade minister of venezuela. so all that said, you have also now written a new book called "the end of power" and that's a we're here to talk about today. so let's start at the beginning. which i think is how did you come to write this book and how did all of those various expenses in form what went into this? >> guest: delighted to be here and thank you. in the introduction you encapsulated many of, by doing all those things as you mentioned, i arrived at -- about what was going on with power. the all know the power is shifting from west to east, from north to south, from very big companies to startups come from people in presidential palaces to people industry. we know that's happening in the world. that's nothing new. but i detected that there was something more profound happening to power, the power was experiencing a mutation. that has to do with power was buying much less than it used to in the past. that people with power could do less with it. that doesn't mean that they're no
for -- well, suckers. may sm may argue foreign policy must be practical and sometimes heartless and what's more, egypt is still in play, as they say. so supplying egypt with ready cash, f-14s and tanks, as we are doing, is part of a larger, more sophisticated world view. play that scenario against the atrocities of the muslim brotherhood's ongoing record -- an unabated and murderous campaign to rid the middle east and egypt in particular of any christian presence, just as jews are abandoning an increasingly anti-semitic turkey, coptic christians are fleeing pharoah's land by the thousands as morsi's marauders collect fem for persecution. drive out catholic nuns and priests. each children are arrested for any perceived blasphemy, a crime in the sharia-based law of the constitution. does mr. kerry or anyone really believe that radical islam is anything more than ethnic cleansing and domination? perhaps when egypt turns the fighter jets against our allies and in benghazi, americans as well. this is a ludicrous iteration of obama's muslim outreach. the result is a foreign policy blind to int
they are not forth coming? it's exhibit "a" of a failed foreign policy. the benghazi debacle before, during, after shows what happens when you lead from behind. al-qaeda is not on the run. bin laden may be dead. but al-qaeda is alive and well all over the region. benghazi is an example of that. >> are the survivors back on the job? >> some are back. working for the government. some are still injuried. the bottom line they feel they cannot come forward. they have been told to be quiet. at the end of the day, we can't let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the american people and the congress. people who were there in real-time to tell the story. again, what susan rice told the american people five theys after the attack collapsed. what the president told the american people for weeks after the attack makes no sense. this was never spontaneous event caused by hateful video. it was always a preplanned terrorist attack. >> bret: what are you telling you? >> american people need to hear what happened that night. they need to hear from the people on the ground. the
to lead the change on foreign policy, talking about smaller foreign policy, less foreign intervention, but he really got conservatives excited, talking about reform, and a lot of people in the party are not eager to reform the party at all. >> any question in your mind, he's a presidential candidate? >> i spoke with rand paul over breakfast earlier this week, and he hasn't announced for anything, but it seems like he'll be heading to iowa and new hampshire pretty soon. >> did marco rubio talk about immigration? what did he talk about? >> he stayed away from immigration, which i found surprising and had a big picture theme in his speech. talking about how the republican party has great principals and time for the party to return to principles and not too concerned in the post-romney era. >> robert, stay with us, please. joining us, north dakota senator john holvin. he was in the obama meeting and still with us, steve, jim, and don. thank you very much. let me just start out, a lot of things, rumors in the air. was pressure put on the president about the keystone pipeline, senator? >> d
their request because they were trying to pursue a foreign policy that was quite frankly ill conceived. they objected, the military, the american military and contractors securing the conflict, they wanted to basically lead from behind and outsource security to a nonexistent government in benghazi, so the president is the primary culpable party here. his leading from behind strategy of trying to basically have a very low american footprint led to this debacle called benghazi, we also know that secretary clinton did not have a clear idea of the threats in benghazi, because she never received any information coming from statements and other people on the ground in benghazi and tripoli about the threats they faced. she was deaf and blind and before the attack is a clear example of a failed foreign policy, a detached president and a deaf and blind secretary of state. >> sean: i mean, what i'm having a hard time wrapping my hands around here is this is a hot bed of terrorist and when an ambassador is requesting additional security you would think this would be taken seriously and this is th
the status of women and girls right at the center of america's foreign policy. [applause] president obama created the white house council of women and girls in order to help prioritize of gender and equality in the work of every single agency. secretary clinton named the first ambassador at large for global woman's issues and made protecting the rights of women and girls a signature of her work. one of the first things that i was priveledged and excited to do together with barbara boxer was when i was chairman of the foreign relations committee, establish a new sub committee on global women's issues, from the white house to the state department, to the senate, women and girls across the world have more champions than american government than ever before, and we can be proud of [applause] that. but still everybody here knows we have to do more. political stability, excuse me, peace, and prosperity, all require every one of us to do what we can to advance human rights for everyone regardless of their gender and ours. that will remain a fundamental priority of the department of state and the
evidence there that because the tone of the diplomats, the tone of the foreign policy has changed, there is more willingness to collaborate with the united states. whether it is allies or rivals. there will always be tensions. you're just now about hamid karzai. that is an issue for the united states when you have someone who is supposed to be your ally speak the way he did. though will always be there. there will never be a time when the u.s. is going to be universally loved. i think that is the fate of the super power. you are loved and to some extent resented. often in equal measures. it is a continuous job that you have to do. i think that hillary clinton with her relentless public diplomacy, did manage to connect with people around the world on some level that we hadn't seen before. history will tell whether it is successful or not. but both she and president obama certainly believed that that was the way to go forward for the united states. and it is all coming under the heading of smart power. >> all right. kim ghattas, thank you for being here. >>> the faithful worldwide w
about foreign policy. it's funny, at times the church has been more comfortable engaging on foreign policy or going to cuba and sitting down with fidel and doing things that were very controversial at that global scale. but to my mind, has not been as comfortable returning to the notions of the poor and the compassion really when it comes to what we do within our own borders or what governments do. >> do you think young people are craving a sort of place to worship? a sense of community around faith? >> no. i don't, i mean -- it's hard to say while we watch this important process. but i think that particularly in the west and in europe where we've talked about -- yes, everyone may come from europe for the pope but most of the industrialized democracies have crashing rates of observance of any regular participation in a church. >> and raising rates of secularism. >> rising rates of secularism. the only religious participation that's on the rise in europe is muslim immigrants to urieuropea countries. i don't know how any leader is going to reduces that macro trends. >> all 115 cardina
claim sovereignty over the east china say. people say xi jinping is leading china's foreign policy on this issue and if so we're in trouble because this is a troubled area. >> woodruff: do you believe ken lieberthal that that's a primary priority of his >> his real priority is domestic. he needs stability abroad in order to reform domestically. but his big problem is that he -- that the communist party has nurtured ardent nationalism domestically and can't allow themselves to get on the wrong side of that or he won't have the political capital to carry out reforms. so he's trying to walk a tightrope, he has to be seen as strong in international affairs but i don't think he's looking for trouble internationally. he'd rather avoid if it if he can. >> woodruff: do you see that the same way? >> i think he would like to avoid trouble but china is doing things which is causing trouble not only with its neighbors from the arc of india to the south to south korea in the north but also with the united states. it's not just a question of cyber hacking, it's these questions of sovereignty, cl
. this has an impact on everything from how we fill up at the pump to foreign policy questions. how we interact with the entire middle east. this is a gigantic change, isn't it? >> it is a gigantic change. look. there are a lot of form of energy out there but we're still relying on oil more domestically, not where most americans would like to be in terms of that ratio. you're right. it has implications for foreign policy. so i don't think we're going to see the end of american reliance on oil any time soon. >> you know, one of the energy issues, jonathan, that president obama has really done his best not to deal with head on because of the political sensitivities is this key stone pipeline. i know he got an earful from republicans this week who have been urging all along for him to approve this and get it going. he has seen maybe this week to signal tentatively that's the direction he will go in. obviously environmentalists are putting pressure on him not to. what do you think will run the course for the key stone pipeline? >> i'm not entirely sure. a decision hasn't come out yet. i th
at columbia -- >> george w. bush's foreign policy was ratified in an election and i dissent from that ratification. >> all i'm saying is -- going back to the frame beyond good and evil, it's this -- >> no, no, i'm just saying -- here's one thing. one is, the record of economic management, right, and then the broader question is, what's the trajectory of it? there's a sense that embues the sense of chavez about this disillusion in the -- right? there was something that was working. and that in the last three or four years there's been disillusion, which is seen in crime and inflation. the trajectory of the country and the country of economic stewardship is not upward but down. >> i was kind of thinking that before the last election. i was kind of, oh, things have gone really wrong. basically it's because i stopped paying attention for a while. i was actually blown away by the election. i was actually surprised. >> he was re-elected in 2012 with 55% of the vote. >> by the way, this is narrowing and narrowing. >> let me say this, 45% of the vote against him is another mark in the no
in the briefing room at the time were 90% foreign policy related. one of the most important roles was congressional relations, calling up congress and keeping them informed even things that weren't supposed to be public yet. she had had some of the worst congressional relations of anyone that i have seen. she has some repair work. i have no doubt the president has full confidence in her because he had to say saw because when she was up important secretary of state. >> do you feel she would be a good choice, a good fit for this position what you have told us. >> dana: i think the president needs somebody he can trust and he trusts her. that is his judgment call. >> bob: let me make one other pointed why this is so important. under the law that was passed 20 some years ago the hill created the intelligence act to committees both the senate and house. every day, i used to have the job, you had to carry this stuff up to the chairman and ranking member had a chance to review it all. its critically important john. donilan has been doing most of it. but it's really sensitive stuff, belie
north korea. that is schizophrenic foreign policy. >> reporter: follows sanctions by the u.s. and u.n. on north korea. bill: they're doing it for a reason. molly henneberg, live from washington starting our coverage. martha continues right now. martha: let's take a closer look at north korea's nuclear test. the north conducted three nuclear tests reportedly gaining the capability back in 2006. the leaders there are threatening a fourth test now. estimates suggest that their arsenal has enough weaponized plutonium to build eight nuclear bombs. the country's ruler with his fingers on the trigger at this point, the younger new leader that is there, kim jong-un, basically is part of the family that has controlled north korea since 1948. bill, let's look at what these things can do. bill: you really do not know what the intention is here on behalf of pongyang especially when you look attesting they have done over past few months. china to the west, russia to the north. south korea and japan to the east. just in the past ten days or so, advance it one time, the armistice that was in place
the football game, but they can't tell you anything that's important. they don't know about foreign policy. they don't even know about the way that our government works and the structure of it and what things mean. and consequently, they have become the ignorant. they have become the unprepared. this is exactly what the founders of this country warned against. they said, our system of government is based upon a well-educated and informed populace. and if our populace becomes anything other than that, we will become a different country. they knew what they were talking about. [applause] and as witness to that fact. congress has a 9% approval rating. and yet, we return the people at a rate of 90% to congress. now, what does that tell you? it tells you that people go in the voting booth and they say, there's a name i recognize, i'm going to vote for that one. you know, they have no idea whether that person represents them or not and what i'm saying to people, the people of america today, is that we are responsible. this is a country that's for and of by the people and not for, of and by the g
foreign policy. they do not know what things mean. consequently, they have become the england. they have become the unprepared. -- consequently, they have become the ignorance. our system of government is based upon a well educated and informed populace. if our populace becomes anything other than that, we will become a different country. they knew what they were talking about. that fact,to congress has a 9% approval rating. they are returned at a rate of 9% to congress. people go into the voting -- rates of 90% to congress. people go into the voting , i recognizesaiy that name. with i am saying to the people of america is that we are responsible. this is a nation that is for the people, not for the government. this is the natural course of men. we have to hold their feet to the fire. [cheers and applause] that is why we have these complex brains. i do not say this just because i am is a neurosurgeon. the brain is the most complex and phenomenal system in the universe. your brain, billions and billions of neurons, even trillions of interconnections. the number of interconnections you hav
the last 12 years republican foreign policy game plan which is let's go in first and ask questions later, has been really undermined and sabotaged by both the american experience in iraq and the american experience in afghanistan. there's been a long tradition of the republican party but i think there's now a reluctance a caution that hasn't been there in the past about foreign intervention. >> woodruff: ron paul has struck a chord. >> he has at the moment. this is american leadership in the role believes america has an important role to play as a world leader including global order, free trade, free water ways, free commerce. that happens because of u.s. military. the idea of the party is not going to be that party. it happen. in the 19 20's the party shifted. for them to go back i have to sate. right now the move from the president of the other party, move intervention, move os tear taught, war exhaustion. when there's a threat from iran i still believe the republican party is a defense party and interveneionist party. he is leading the party one way, marco rubio is leading another.
to begin my remarks on benghazi with a small criticism of senator paul's stance on foreign policy. a constructive one, i hope. i love the guy and his filibuster was brilliant. long overdue. but while he was right on the constitution, he was wrong on the law of war, especially the distinction between a combatant in a noncombatant. conservatives cannot follow his definition of it now stands, or we will not deserve to be taken seriously on foreign policy. let's start in benghazi. the attack on the u.s. consulate in september was the worst national security failure since the original 9/11. it truly deserves the label scandal for three reasons. one because president barack obama and his administration lied about the attack. number two because the media aided the cover-up. and number three is because the president did nothing to rescue those at the conflict, including ambassador chris stevens. but benghazi was not just a national security failure. it was also a constitutional failure. the president has a constitutional duty to act as the commander in chief and he failed to do so. he did

by an aggressive foreign policy. a reception hall built in 661 carries an inscription running from riser to tread recounting palenque's battles against calakmul, a large kingdom to the northeast. relief sculptures of captives flank the stairways. palenque and calakmul vied for control of the rich fertile tabasco plain that stretched north from palenque toward the gulf of mexico. when the kings of palenque sat in the palace and looked out across the tabasco plain all the way to the gulf of mexico, it was the region that they dominated. and from that region, they were able to collect cotton and cacao, two principal sources of wealth. (narrator) pakal died in 683 and was succeeded by his oldest son kan bahlam-- his name means snake jaguar-- who reigned until 702. he continued to expand the glory of palenque. there is no other place where we find, for example, the use of parallel corbels as early as we see them here. and one of the things that this does is make the buildings inherently more stable. these buildings have stood the test of time better than at almost any other site because of the kind of

with iran. is it your sense that things are deteriorating further? this foreign-policy that has been followed by this administration is, in some way effective? >> well, i don't think that is entirely new language. the president bush used the same kind of line on the subject. i think it is to make clear that while we are prepared to pursue negotiating options that if we are not successful in deflecting or deterring them from acquiring a nuclear weapon, that we don't rule out the possibility of the direct use of force. there are ongoing negotiations at the moment. i don't think they have made particularly a lot of progress, but there will be a couple more rows that will take place, and we will have to see what happens. my personal view is that iranian determination is strong for nuclear-weapons. sooner or later we in israel and other interested countries are going to be confronted with the issue as to what to do about it. obviously that is going to be very high on the agenda of president obama's meetings with the israeli leaders because for israel the question of iran and its acquiring
